More information

Background information:
Heistraat 3 is a detached residence of modest size and with Mansarde roof. The property was built around 1900 and was later equipped with an extension. The type of house is common in villages and small towns mainly on the old main streets, such as so-called "ribbons" and dikes.
Mansarde roofs, which is what the form of the angled roof is called, have been built in the Netherlands for a long time and still are. Examples can be found from 1850 to 2017.
The type of house also lends itself to a situation on a narrow plot, as we see a lot in the western part of the Netherlands. The Markenburg model has been made to a house in the village of Lennisheuvel, North Brabant.

Architectural details:
What is immediately stands out is the color of the brickwork. This has been painted in cream-white shade before 1980. The masonry consists of the so-called brick bond.
Although the main volume masonry has been executed well, even with graceful layer at the knee height, the building was built as a sober, but certainly not dull home. The expansion was made later and not raised in one go.
The last part was added around the 1980s. This is also the last date the house has been modernized.
